This bottle was stunning! The acid still so fresh - blind tasted was pinned as burgundy. A testament to the incredible talents of Bob Sessions in his tenure at Hanzell - showing what is truly possible from Chardonnay in Sonoma. Balancing before "balance" was a necessary descriptor / divider. This wine had mineral, acid, and weight all in harmony. And remarkable youth. Thank you Bob. — 3 years ago
Blind, this tasted more like older left bank Bordeaux than CA Zin... CM's zins from the 70's and 80's seem to age (and taste) more like Cabernet Sauvignon from the same period. Really impressive! — 3 years ago
